Excerpt: "Hernando's Hideaway" is a show tune from the musical The Pajama Game, written by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross and published in 1954. The lyrics describe a dark and secretive nightclub. The most successful recording of the song was done by Archie Bleyer, the record reaching #2 on the Billboard chart in 1954. A rendition by Enoch Light was featured prominently on Command Records' "Provocative Percussion" as well as the Command test record. It has also been covered by David Clayton Thomas and is often spun by breakbeat DJs. R
